We all know that taking care of your hair is extremely important to keep it strong, healthy, and growing, but it is also just as important to take care of your scalp as well. Your scalp may be hidden under your hair, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be taken care of properly. Below you will find some Studio Be Salon scalp care tips and products to help.
How do you know if your scalp is unhealthy?
If you are experiencing any of these on your scalp:
- Sun damage
- Excessive hair loss
How should I care for my scalp?
The same basic principles of skin care generally apply to scalp care, as well. Consistently removing debris, dirt, and oil on your scalp is vital, as is hydrating it. And just like your skin-care routine, your scalp-care routine should be reflective of the condition of your scalp. If yours tends to be dry, for example, avoid overstripping it with harsh scrubs.
What Products Should I Use?
Paul Mitchell Clean Beauty Scalp Therapy – Infused with grapevine sap and chamomile extract, this sulfate-free (without SLS, SLES, ALS) shampoo gently cleanses hair and helps soothe and replenish the scalp. Zinc helps rebalance sebum while strengthening and nourishing strands. Can be used daily to refresh the scalp and promote healthy hair.
Surface Awaken – Use Surface Awaken to get a healthy scalp and rejuvenate your hair. Natural extracts including Saw Palmetto combine with mineral ferments and antioxidants to help detoxify and rejuvenate the scalp and follicle. Nutrients are maximized with vegan protein and essential amino acids.
Ways to promote a healthy scalp
If you already have a healthy scalp, it is essential to be continually preventing these issues from arising. You can start by shampooing gently with products that don’t use alcohol, sulfates, or fragrances. When shampooing your hair, don’t scrub your scalp; instead, massage it to increase blood flow and circulation. A huge misconception is the need to wash your hair and scalp more often to prevent any issues, this doesn’t seem right because your scalp needs the natural oils it produces, and when it is washed too often, it strips it from the natural oils. When the scalp is washed too often, it overcompensates for the oils lost from shampooing, causing a greasier scalp in the long run. It is recommended to only wash your hair at maximum, three to four times a week.
